The following story is shared by our artist, Jiao, who made the carnations.
We translate it on Jiao's behave.
"I have been unable to walk for as long as I can remember, and I could hardly leave my house since I was a child. I didn't go to elementary school, so I had to borrow my brother's books to learn on my own. For more than 20 years, I had to get by because of my disability and my difficult life. In 2022, my father was diagnosed with terminal cancer, and because my family was not rich, my mother and I felt that the sky had collapsed all of a sudden. But that was the moment I finally came to my senses: I was not well, but I could still work, so I should take responsibility for my family. So I started to learn how to do crafts from scratch, thinking that I could do a little bit to share the pressure for the family. At first, I only thought about selling them, but when I saw each craft come to life between my fingers, I felt a great sense of accomplishment, and every day was more energetic! Now my father's treatment still needs a lot of medical expenses, my limited ability, I hope you support more, I will also be more attentive to do a good job handmade to give back to everyone. I wish you all a brighter life and am grateful for all the loveliness in the world!
